MOLLE (pronounced molly, as in the female name) is an acronym for Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment. It is used to define the current generation of load-bearing equipment and backpacks utilized by a number of NATO armed forces, especially the British Army and the United States Army. The system’s modularity is derived from the use of PALS webbing as rows of heavy-duty nylon stitched onto the vest to allow for the attachment of various MOLLE-compatible pouches and accessories. This method of attachment has become a de facto standard for modular tactical gear.
There are literally hundreds of different styles of pouches and other gear holders available for the Molle system, and the flexibility of the system makes it perfect for carrying trail gear and other items in a Jeep. The Molle Bar storage system is a set of PALS-style sleeves that attach to the roll bars using velcro straps; once installed pouches and other Molle items can be attached to the roll bars.
There are quite a few good places in a typical Jeep where the Molle Bar system can be used. At right, a sleeve is installed on the roll bar connector over the passenger door. There are four pouches on that sleeve – a general small pouch, a Case Logic MP3 case, a Swiss Army knife pouch, and in the rear, a sunglass pocket. At left, a sleeve is installed around the center of the main roll bar hoop of a TJ Wrangler, and also one is installed on the rear bar extension.In the center roll bar location, pouches can be installed on both the front and back sides of the bar – two pouches are installed in this location.

Molle Bar sleeves are available in a range of lengths and styles and can be mixed and matched and combined with the many available pouches and other accessories to make a custom-tailored storage system for any Jeep.[space]
